Descripción:
The DC-3 attempted to land at Reykjavik during heavy snowfall. The first attempt to land was aborted as the runway lights were not visible at 500 feet. The crew were instructed to climb to 2000 feet before being asked to try to land again, since visibility had improved a little. Last radio contact was when the crew reported at 700 feet. An oil spot and some pieces of wreckage were found on the sea the next day, some 10 miles from the airport.
